9:19 pm
now accounts for 25 billion dollars a year. 6 percent of all the money spent by medicare. >> all of the things are very difficult. very expensive. >>reporter: but they are cheaper than 20,000 dollars a month for dialysis. >> carolyn reporting. dr. roy believes with adequate funding his team could potentially have the artificial kidney ready for clinical trials within 5 years. >> leading edge of hurricane earl is approaching the north carolina coast tonight. this is live picture from riceville beach in north carolina along the outer bank. earl lost some of the much steam since this morning. category 2 with winds slowing from 140 to 105 miles per hour. but hurricane force winds are still possible along the coast as the eye passes farther out into the ocean. this could mark the beginning of at least 24 hours of very stormy weather along the coast which would snarl labor day weekend plans for thousands of people in fact many vacationers already told they have to go.
